RE: 34 ft 89 winnebago chieftain

Wow thanks so much for all the replies. I will keep this updated as I figure out the solutions. We ended up buying a 4000/3000w champion genny. Still would like to get the onan fixed because of the convenience of it pulling fuel from the main rv tank. Then just keep the champion as a backup. I'm not sure about the BGE on NHM Richard. Will get back to you on that. I have the owners manual for the genny itself. I'm almost certain I blew the starter on it though. Will troubleshoot some of this and keep you all posted. Thanks again for all the replies :)

34 ft 89 winnebago chieftain

Hey rv world. This is my first post, and I have a few questions about my motorhome I just purchased. My ol lady and I decided to switch to full time rv life due to a rental crisis in bc Canada. I'll start by saying I am mechanically inclined, but I have no idea what I'm doing with this rv. I think maybe the size and the number of systems overwhelms me and I don't know where to start on some of the issues I'm having. First off, the rear dual wheels seem to be so so close to the wheel wells. I see other motorhomes with at least 6 more inches of height all around. I've bottomed out a couple of times presumably on the hitch assembly. Most recent was a ramp off the street turning into a gas station where I literally got stuck, and had to have my ol lady push me free, front bumper to front bumper, rv to car, because my rear wheels spun when I tried to reverse free. Is this a suspension issue? Axel? Both sides are equally close to the wells. And generally the entire rig seems low to me. I even had a guy walk by and stop and talk to me when I was dumping sewage and go..."wow that thing generally ride low? Better be careful." Next thing. The sensor for my water tank seems to have crapped out. I can't get a reading when I hit the switch to check. That and I can't seem to fill the tank to F without loosing half my water during travel. When the sensor worked and I could get a reading while I filled, it would start coming out of what I presume is an overflow tube on the passenger side rear wheel well at about 3/4 full. Then generally I'm at about half when we reach our spot. There's also a very slow small drip of water in the LP tank compartment. Hole in the tank? Is that an easy fix or a complete re n re of the tank? I think the only other thing is our onan emerald 3 inboard genny would run, then die 30 min later, run, die, blew the starter...just guna have that serviced. But any info I can get would help immensely as we are on a budget, and if I can do the work myself, obviously that's better for us. Thanks in advance. Glad to have joined. Been reading lots of topics and it's clear this forum knows wtf it's talking about. Thanks much Skwiz
